Back Pain & Sciatica: Is It a Bulging Disc or Degenerative Changes?

Bulging discs and degenerative changes are the 2 most common causes of lower back pain and sciatica that we see in the clinic. And one of the most common questions that I get is “How do I know if I have a bulging disc or some other degenerative type of pain?”

In this video, I’ll explain to you how to determine which of these 2 is causing your back and sciatica pain. And I’ll also explain how you need to adopt a different treatment approach depending on the type of pain you have.

Blueberry & Greens Smoothie

Blueberry & Greens Smoothie

This time of year, there’s nothing better than a nice, cold smoothie packed full of good fat and a few greens for good measure.

Below is my favorite go-to smoothie recipe. If I’m going to want a little extra energy that day (say we’re going swimming at the beach) I’ll drink a pint of this after breakfast.

I hope you like it!

The Easiest Way to Lose 20# Quickly (Without Going Hungry!)

The Easiest Way to Lose 20# Quickly (Without Going Hungry!)

Lately, it seems like more and more people are interested in losing weight…

One of the more common circumstances is people who need to lose weight in order to have some kind of surgery.

Let me give you Sandy’s story as an example. Sandy came into the clinic earlier this week because of severe left knee pain.

Sandy visited the knee surgeon a month or so ago, and this is what she told me when she came in for her consultation:

= = = = = =
“The doctor tells me that my knee is bone-on-bone and that I need a total knee replacement, but he won’t do the surgery until I lose 20 pounds.”
= = = = = =

So if she can’t exercise much, how will she lose the weight?
